, transnational crime and terrorism, enhancing commerce between nations and dealing with climate change. it requires courage and leadership to take the first step to a mutual understanding. i've been particularly impressed recently with juan manuel santos, the president of colombia, as he reaches out to two of his neighbors to restore diplomatic relations. .. against the people of cuba and that we display no interest in furthering or improving diplomatic relations. all us should continue to press the cuban government but the embargo undermines any credibility that my country has in calling for improvements in cuba. and i fear our democracy-aid program is aimed at regime change and does not promote democracy. unfortunately, the program is used by some in cuba to justify cuban-american gross who i know might believe to be innocent and keep him in prison. a more sincere diagnose should be held with -- the main reason that united states keeps cuba on the list is that because the et a have officers in cuba, but when i was last in havana, the columbian and the spanish told me that having them
, it was for constitutional reasons. they did not realize that the commerce clause of the constitution was not very relevant. that is why this so difficult to get states to cooperate with the federal governnt. there was a gao study that found that come in fiscal year 2009, nine federal agencies spend $18 billion to administer 40 different training programs. almost all federal employment training programs, including those with broader missions, such as multi-purpose block grants, overlap with at least one other program and provided similar services to similar populations. so there is simply a lot of services provided and oftentimes not provided in a very coherent fashion, at least from my standpoint. i should make clear that there are a lot of people who have worked actively in the department of labour. i am not one of them. so i defer to the appeared to have a lot more information about the structure of these programs. from the standpoint of looking out, it does not seem like we have a very coherent program. the employment, security and -- program provide more extensive long-term employment training program
gravitas behind it. and there's hope the worldwide commerce will pick up. that's how federal expressi can levitate to where it was. taking en masse, and those are en masse hope stocks, these groups are but a small percentage of the entire u.s. stock market that's rally. that's what matters to me. this is what brings me to the real takeaway. i think this rally is not about hope. i think it's about cold, hard facts and believe it or not the facts for many sectors are really pretty darn good. so let's get to those. first, this is a rally about cds, certificates of deposit. the returns you're getting on these are reminiscent of what a checking account used to offer you versus a savings account in the old days the disparity was so great that you would do anything to keep money out of your checking account. now many people are willing to accept these ridiculous rates for their savings accounts. plus people own bond funds that could get hammered if rates eventually go up. how can they do this in good conscience? but some folks aren't. some folks really get it. some are buying dividend paying sto
, the corporate entities, chamber of commerce, "free trade, nafta, cafta, permanent normal trade relations with china, will be the greatest thing since sliced bread." all right? the end result is that in the last ten years, we have seen 55,000 factories in america shut down, millions of decent-paying jobs lost. you go out to elderly people and they say, "i can't buy a product made in america anymore. where are the factories? where are the decent-paying jobs?" so i would like to see the president get up there and say, "you know what? we're going to rethink our trade policies. i want corporate america to start investing in america, not in china." other things that he could be doing, certainly, i think the much maligned stimulus bill, to my mind, was one of the most important pieces of legislation passed in my lifetime, in my state, money into bridges, into roads, into head start, into sustainable energy, created 6,000, 7,000 jobs when we needed it a whole lot. you need more of that. i just got off a plane a little while ago. believe me, our airports are in trouble. roads, bridges, schools, w
at it than there. you think of three kinds of broadly speaking, look at cyberattacks, free commerce. one is to try for you to try to take down networks, whether it's a communications network, for example, take down, shut down your to mutations, financial or something. the other two ways depend on the networks working. one is to use your communications networks to launch an attack against another network ideological grid. so use it as a point. and a third is to use it for content, and this is where the islamists have considerable confidence in radicalizing people over the internet with radical oriented islamic content. so we have an edge in the first two areas. we have the us and the israelis. most skilled people elsewhere on this, probably by governments behind russia and china are very good at that stuff. and that will come into any confrontation we have with them. content, they are more skilled at using than we are but we should certainly use whatever weapons we can. >> thank you, john. that's give john a hand.
